“NH Council Votes 4-1 To Reject 27 Million in Strings-Attached Fed Money for Immunization Oversight,” exults a website whose report on this miracle Bill Martin forwarded to me.
And what strings are attached to that $27 million?
- comply with existing and/or future directives and guidance from the Secretary regarding control of the spread of Covid-19,
- assist the U.S. Government in the implementation and enforcement of federal orders related to quarantine and isolation,
Does that chill your soul to -100 F as it does mine?
- provide to CDC copies of and/or access to COVID-19 data collected with these funds, including but not limited to data pertaining to COVID-19 testing
… all four Republicans on the State’s Executive Council voted against federal contracts [ [Republican Governor Chris Sununu] has pushed hard to approve.
This, according to Sununu, makes New Hampshire the only state to refuse the money which opponents say has lots of federal strings attached. I guess we’re special.
And hard-working. To cite one instance, New Hampshire’s serfs are holding rulers’ feet to the fire—even if it means the serfs themselves get burned:
YOU reached out in large numbers to make sure your elected representatives on the Executive Council knew your mind on this matter.
Not only did they “reach out,” they showed up at the Council’s meetings, risking arrest:
… there was a zero-tolerance policy [at said meetings] for any sort of outburst which appears to have involved anything. The Union leader reports that several folks are being removed for shouting. We had people on the scene saying folks were removed for no reason. That there were people escorted out who were not shouting or even speaking loudly. In other words, they were not interrupting the meeting.
There will be more pics and video I’m sure, and we’ll get to the bottom of that as soon as we can.
Seems as if “Live Free or Die” is carved in granite in New Hampshire!4:46 pm on October 13, 2021 Email Becky Akers
